A high chair is a highly functional baby item, so you want to make sure you feel good about which one you pull the trigger on. It should last you for years, perhaps multiple kids, and most importantly be a safe environment for the many meals and time they will spend in it. I’ve narrowed it down to the top two picks - each very different but serve two good purposes.
Overall top pick —> Stokke Tripp Trapp is the clear top choice. Its number one benefit is that it will grow with your kiddo for years to come. You can pull it right up to a table eventually so when they don’t need a tray anymore it becomes just another seat at the table. In fact it is strong enough to hold up to 242 lbs so Mom or Dad can take a turn too lol. Another perk is that it is aesthetically good looking and comes in several color options.
Overall budget pick —> IKEA Antilop is so popular it is hard to believe this chair is literally only $20. It is simple, easy to clean because there are no crevices and ultra lightweight. This is my top recommend if you need an extra chair on hand at a grandparents house.
